It’s not surprising to see several singles go up and down the UK Official Singles Chart during the week of March 24–30, 2023, since this reflects the increasing acceptance Afrobeats tracks continue to have on the global stage and as it presents thrilling moments. However, the song “Calm Down” by Rema had a surprising ascent this week, one of the chart’s most significant changes.
After spending 30 weeks on the chart, the single has climbed one spot from its previous high of fifth to a new peak of fourth. This achievement demonstrates Rema’s escalating stardom on a global scale and the significant influence his hits have on the UK music scene. Rema’s future success will be eagerly anticipated if he keeps creating distinctive and alluring music.
The song “People” by Libianca, which spent 12 weeks on the chart, also set a new top this week, peaking at number five, up two spots from the previous week’s position of seven. Given that the track had only recently been released, this swift rise to the top of the chart is astonishing. There is a good chance that the single may climb the chart in the upcoming weeks as word of mouth spreads, and more people hear the song.
On the other hand, after spending nine weeks on the chart, Ayra Starr’s song “Rush” fell two spots to 26th this week. Despite spending nine weeks on the chart, the music has declined because it hasn’t matched the popularity of the previous releases.
